EASTER falls on the last weekend of March this year and Kiandra's Parks staff have four full days of tours and exhibitions as well as all four restored buildings to showcase Kiandra's positive future.
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Heritage Coordinator for Kiandra Jennifer Hewitson says it's the first time since gold rush days that all four buildings will be open in the township.
"The Courthouse, Matthews Cottage and Pattinson's Hut will be open to enjoy and people can either join a Parks tour or meander between these historic buildings," Ms Hewitson said.
"Our team is proud to show off the newly revitalised Kiandra over Easter because it now offers a unique set of experiences in Kosciuszko National Park.
"There is too much on offer to list, but we have art exhibitions, a Kiandra relic exhibition, barista coffee and other refreshments, barbecue lunches, and of course our excellent tours planned so I hope everyone will come and join us."
Some of the activities from the annual Coolamine Picnic Day have been moved to Kiandra on Saturday. These include an Aboriginal cultural display and traditional timber skill demonstrations.
Ms Hewitson said volunteers, staff and the wider Snowy Mountains community were excited to open Matthew's Cottage and Pattinson's Hut for the very first time.
Matthew's will feature an exhibition of never before seen images of Kiandra and Pattinson's Hut will offer a museum style look at a quaint mountain house.
On Saturday and Sunday Rotary will cook barbecue lunches and picnics are welcome every day.
"When you arrive come to the Courthouse to register for tours so you can appreciate the adaptive re-use we are undertaking at this heritage site.
"Accommodation at Wolgals Hut is proving popular and it is booked out over Easter so it will not be available to tour but we will have information and experts on hand to explain what is occurring with this unique hut," Ms Hewitson said.
